Price discrimination, Managerial Economics

A values having one unit at £10 and having two units at £12 whereas B values having one unit at £8 and having two units at £16. There is a monopolist providing this good at zero cost but who cannot distinguish among the two consumers.

(b) Now suppose instead that the monopolist may design packages and charge one price for a single unit and a separate price for a package of two units. What will be the optimal prices?

(c) What kind of price discrimination is this (?rst, second or third degree)?
